To Size up or down, that is the question!

The absolute number one, most frequent question we hear from customers is this: what size should I buy? I originally developed this sizing system in order to deliver versatility and a personalized fit. But, it can be overwhelming to select from all the options when planning your conversion. Sizing is, without a doubt, the biggest question mark in the custom carrier planning process. In response we have compiled the following information and suggestions.

Colour with ObiMama

With the trend of adult colouring books being at the height of its popularity, I thought it would be fun to create an ObiMama colouring page for you guys. I've been hearing all about adult colouring and the benefits of it: decreasing stress, helping evoke emotions you felt at a simpler time in your life (like childhood),  focusing the brain and calming anxiety. I really wanted to do something for the wonderful community that ObiMama encompasses.

When you’ve printed it out and coloured it (or perhaps your littles did), please tag us on Instagram using #TeamObiMama. We’d love to see your creations!

The preview is below and you can download the PDF ready for printing here. Happy coloring!

Dr. Who #4 and #11 Handmade Mei Tais

Regeneration

The Doctor. Who? THE Doctor. If you are a fan, a real fan, a true fan, then these carriers need no introduction. For all the rest of you humans, just enjoy the eye candy.

Everything you see here will be fore sale in our store on Friday, 2/6/2015. If you are able to use the TARDIS at any point, don't worry about stalking the stocking. Normal people will need to be a bit more on point.

Number Four, arguably the best Doctor ever (and please, let's do have this argument), memorialized in baby carrier form. Because Dr. Who.
His signature scarf (the best souvenir ever, created here entirely in wrap scraps), CHECK. Jaunty cravat? CHECK. The rest is all done in natural, un-dyed linen.

On the reverse: Number Eleven. Notice the details, please. Real woolen bow tie. Real woolen tweeds. Braces. For heaven's sake, this baby carrier has braces (that's suspenders for you Yanks--believe me, I've made that mistake!). Oxford cloth shirting, with buttons done in soft felt.
